Recruitment of new hams and ARRL members is an integral part of the job of every ARRL  appointee. Appointees should take advantage of every opportunity to recruit a new ham or member to foster growth of Field Organization programs, and our abilities to serve the public.

Pennsylvania Act 15 of 2015 requires anyone having “direct contact with children” to obtain clearances from the Pennsylvania State Police and the Department of Human Services. An FBI fingerprint records check is also required for those who have not resided in Pennsylvania continuously for ten (10) years preceding the application date. The Pennsylvania clearances may be obtained online, free of charge for people providing volunteer services. The FBI fingerprinting and records check is available to volunteers at a reduced price. If the FBI check is not required, the applicant must swear or affirm in writing that he or she is not disqualified from service based upon a conviction of an offense under §6344. Copies of clearances and statements must be submitted with all applications.
